PATRICK MAVROS MAURITIUS COLLECTION LUXURY BRAND FROM AFRICA
I am a globetrotter and I have been in love with silver jewellery all my life. Whenever I visit Nairobi, I make sure that I buy one piece of jewellery from Patrick Mavros. These silver pieces are handcrafted and each piece is unique. Not wonder that the Duchess Kate Middleton loves it too and has many pieces of this brand in her jewellery collection. Many elite families of UK prefer to buy pieces from his shop or website to decorate their home as well.
These unique pieces can be passed on from one generation to another just like a “jadau har” or “naulakha har” but these pieces are even better, as you can wear them everyday and your naulakha necklace can be safely kept in the locker.
This brand was founded 35 years ago when the then-soldier, Patrick, carved a pair of earrings for his wife, Catja. She wore them to the hair salon, where the hairdresser fell in love with them and instantly requested a pair for herself.
This started it all, A new business was born and today it is recognised as one the luxury brands of Africa for Silver and Gold Jewellery. They also the most unique decor in silver such candelabra, table settings such silver coffee spoons, pepper shakers, napkin rings, coasters, candle holders, shakers.
Patrick stays at home, the workshops, the family homestead, the wildlife sanctuary and the studio are all built to form a small village on the family estate in the wild hills outside Harare in Zimbabwe, Africa
The Mavros sons, Alexander, Forbes, Patrick Jr. and Benjamin are also all passionately involved in the business.

This design was taken from a starfish Forbes found washed up and dried out on the beach. He made a mould of this large starfish.

The Grande Starfish Necklace really commands attention, so when you wear this piece expect to be noticed'!

Care for your jewellery:
Keep Away From Perfumes.
Always keep them in a satin black pouch provided by the jeweller.
Clean them with a soapy water and wipe of with a tissue or soft cloth.
My personal experience.
I am a proud owner of Patrick Mavros Jewellery from the last three years and I haven't seen anything like this in India. If you can save some money over a period of time, I definitely suggest to you purchase atleast one piece of jewellery from this brand and experience the magic yourself.
Since its sterling silver it doesn't get oxidised that easily. Occasional cleaning is required to keep the jewellery shiny and beautiful. Do not use harsh chemicals or perfumes on these pieces. Please sure you wear them once you are done with the makeup.
